Heritage Skills: Swill Basket-Making

Swills are very traditional baskets from the Furness area. During the three-day course we will start with a coppiced oak tree, a bundle of hazel rods and go through the whole process. Everyone should be able to complete their own swill. No previous experience is necessary. A simple vegetarian lunch is provide.

Location: High Nibthwaite. Cost: £60
